HTC One Will Fight Against Apple And Samsung
Taiwan’s HTC on Sunday announced its much-anticipated new flagship smartphone will go on sale in three countries this week, although the rollout elsewhere will only take place by the end of April. “The new HTC One will roll out in the UK, Germany and Taiwan next week and across Europe, North America and most of Asia-Pacific before the end of April,” the company said in a statement. The Android-based HTC One was unveiled in London and New York last month sporting a 4.7-inch touchscreen and front-facing speakers. Company president Peter Chou hailed it as a “technological breakthrough” as he seeks to put up a fight against the hugely popular Apple iPhone and Samsung’s newly-released Galaxy S4. However it has a tough fight, with research firm firm IDC saying HTC held a 4.6 percent share of the global smartphone market in 2012, a sharp decline from 8.8 percent a year earlier. Samsung held 30.3 percent, while Apple had 19.1 percent.
Despite decreasing global market share. HTC still produces a very competitive and well designed smartphones. Recently HTC Windows Phonnes 8X and 8S received Red Dot Award for design.
